ATCAS #46 - Luxury

Hello everyone! I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far.

Today we have a brand new challenge starting over at ATCAS and our amazing, cas loving Sandie is your hostess this time around.

Here is the code word that she has chosen for you -

Hmmm luxury! That's a corker of a code word, Sandie. It really made me get my thinking cap on. 

Does Luxury make you think of fine foods, first class travel, first class accommodation or maybe jewellry? Perhaps the simpler things in life are a luxury to you - just being able to sit down and read a book after a busy day or even spending time with the kids. It's a busy world out there and I'm sure you will find something that will inspire you for this challenge.

I decided to go with Gold and Friendship as luxury. Not that the two are necessarily connected, lol.

I had been sent some die cut butterflies by the beautiful and generous Barb (my teamie over at ATSM) that were within my birthday card. They are wonderful die cuts and I used one for this card -

Here it is -

The backing butterfly was embossed with gold powder. It is so pretty!

The sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping who is our amazing sponsor for this challenge. I love this sentiment and embossed in gold it is just stunning! You can find the stamp set (Friends Forever) HERE

Again, our sponsor -

Joanna is offering a $15 gift certificate to her store!

That's it from me. Pop on over to the challenge blog and have a look at the spectacular inspiration from the Design Team.
